About Us

CAM International is now Camino Global.

Founded in 1890 as the Central American Mission, Camino Global has always been focused on ministry among Spanish speakers.  Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua have been at the heart of our outreach for more than a century. The mission went through its first name change in 1975, from the Central American Mission to CAM International, reflecting the expansion of ministries beyond Central America to places such as Mexico, Spain, Panama, Hispanic USA and Canada.

Today, the scope of our outreach is truly global.  Camino missionaries serve alongside Spanish speakers everywhere, with feet on the ground on four continents.  And the explosive growth of online ministry has accelerated Camino’s impact on a global scale, reaching Spanish speakers in more than 100 nations through tools such as and ministry partnerships with organizations such as Global Media Outreach.

on May 21, 2012 for the Camino Launch Party.

The name Camino Global reflects the fact that our ministry remains focused on Spanish speakers, but also the reality that Spanish speakers are no longer limited to the Western Hemisphere + Spain; they are on the move globally.  As they move, we will move with them, producing and empowering biblically-maturing Spanish-speaking believers to reach the world.

We are on a shared journey of spiritual transformation with Spanish speakers.  The word Camino is translated from Spanish as “journey”, “path” or “way.” The inclusion of the word Global provides a clear scope for the journey, and reflects the Latin American diaspora, the migration of Spanish speakers across the globe.

    1. I don’t believe they do, but if a missionary on the field saw this as a need I think they would be ok with them using that tool. It doesn’t apply much to what we are doing with missionary kids, but we have friends that are using microloans to help communities here.
